Best one is the Phantom. You have the link above.

But do you know what you are asking for? The camera cost the price of 2-3 cars.
Unless you use it nearly daily - not worth the money.

And i would seriously consider renting. And even then - you'll think twice, and want definitely get a good days work done when you have the camera...

One final point - at 500 or 1000 fps. You will plenty of light. Lots of light. More than you ever dreamt of. Google Vincent Laforet and his post on shooting slow motion - he burned like 20 kW or more of lights. And only was able to film at f3.2... think about that before you rent the camera

OOpppsss sorry i didn't quote my price range...
Should be around 3~5k shouldn't be a problem...
Was actually looking for a slow motion cam for my company.
Not really looking at a pro type camera.
Was looking at casio ex-FH25.
Not able to find a local shop which sell it.
So was asking for help here....

hmmm.. the EX-FH25, when bumped up to 1000FPS, the resolution is 224x64 only. You know how small is that?

This is how small it is....
